Yes, it’s a very common question. With The Short Fall, it’s about voice. It’s the voice inside that can’t—that won’t—be turned off. Now I’m sure somebody could find a better way to convey that with paragraphs, but without seemed obvious & so much more straightforward to me. Later, many headaches later, I got used to managing the transitions, and paragraph breaks now feel like cheating, in a way … so I have to be careful when I use them. I think they’re like a bad habit, like smoking—once I quit them, I’ve been reluctant to return.
